When I received a box of useful meal solutions from Perdue, I knew that I would have a fantastic meal plan this month! January is a busy time for us (especially since I started a new job), so I needed to get on track fast. I like to make simple salads, tacos, or two-step dinners, and Perdue delivered.

We received one of the first Perdue Farms direct-to-consumer boxes! This particular box, coined the โ€œFamily Bundle (Medium),โ€ is available for purchase. All products in this pack are meant to feed and please the entire family no matter what the meal occasion! Products come from PERDUEยฎ, PERDUEยฎ Harvestlandยฎ, and Niman Ranch brands and include:

  • Niman Ranch Applewood Uncured Bacon: Our uncured applewood-smoked bacon is the number-one selling bacon at natural and specialty grocers across the country! Our exceptional center-cut uncured bacon is made in small batches and slow smoked over real applewood to give you an authentic smoky flavor with no artificial colors or additives.
